chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream recipeThere is absolutely nothing more rewarding than making your own ice cream. You start with some simple ingredients, make it hot, then make it cold, and freeze it – and magically, ice cream is the end result. I usually stay away from custard based ice creams when I am making them myself. I was intimidated by making a custard, and sometimes they can taste very eggy. And now I am kicking myself. This is the richest, creamiest, most velvety ice cream I have ever made. The eggs make all the difference in the creamy and velvety factor, and not even remotely eggy tasting.  I was so happy with how this ice cream turned out.

My husband’s favorite flavor is chocolate chip cookie dough. I’ll be honest, this was a little more work than I usually do, but it was not difficult by any means. It just takes a little time. The problem with cookie dough ice cream is the raw dough. It has raw egg and can be unsafe. You have two options to fix this problem. You can use an eggless cookie dough recipe, or you can use a pasteurized egg like Safe Eggs. When you are using Safe Eggs, you can use your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and use half for the ice cream, and bake off the rest. Ice cream sandwiches? Yes please.

I used a vanilla ice cream base, but to make it takes more cookie like, I used brown sugar in place of the white sugar. The recipe comes from Sweet Cream and Sugar Cones which is the book from Bi-Rite Creamery, which happens to be my favorite ice cream place in the entire world. If you are ever in San Fransisco, do yourself a favor and make a stop. Get yourself a Sam’s Sundae, and thank me later.

edited – I get asked quite a bit about my ice cream maker. I have been using this Cuisinart 2 Quart ice cream maker for a few years now and I love it. I always keep the bowl in the freezer so I can make ice cream whenever I want. I might order an additional bowl, because it does take a full 24 hours for the bowl to re-freeze.

    I love all of the ice cream recipes I find, especially during summer, and I am a little apprehensive. This might sound pretty dumb.. but I have a Cuisinart soft serve ice cream maker, and I’m just not sure if it’ll work the same with ice cream recipes :/

    I am not usually a fan of cookie dough ice cream only because I usually feel sick afterwards (I love the taste of it though!). But your ice cream is just so beautiful and I wish I had an ice cream maker because I keep seeing all of these ice cream recipes coming out and it’s making me sad I can’t make them

    Thinking of making this icecream this weekend when we have friends over for dinner. Could you tell me how long does the process normally take, start to finish? :)

    • bakedbree says:

      To do it right, it takes 2 days. The custard needs to chill overnight. If you skip that step, 6ish hours?

      • Kayla Ebert says:

        Well, looks like our friends will have to bring it over pre-made :) Can’t wait to try it, thank you for such a quick reply!
